Spring 2016 seems to have arrived early, including at the ledge. But not by much. Thanks again to all observers, chatters, on-site staff and helpers everywhere. Updates will be added as time permits, and pics will be added to 'more birds' gallery as per usual.
The 'scrape' is now prepared and being sat on at various times by Callie since mating has been observed by 'eneri' (on the 13/14th of April) and thus, eggs will be laid, so keep watching for this.
There is now a 2nd peregrine nesting site in the area - at the Foothills Hospital, which is territory that doesn't overlap with 'our' falcons', but is on the way when flying towards the Bow River and its gulls. That site hasn't been used for many years, until now. See news item: http://globalnews.ca/news/2657159/watch-for-peregrine-falcons-at-calgary...
Additional screen pics (and others sent in, incl. excellent ones of other falcons) can be viewed by clicking on the 'More Birds' link above this page. The pics are in date order, starting with earliest. Just scroll down for latest photos/shots and click on pic to enlarge.
For those interested in 'chatting' and uni-ledge-related discussions, pls. (currently) go to:
Thanks, as always, to our IT gurus, spec. 'lcrweb'!! And to all those photographers, especially 'Richard', 'Birdsinger', 'neener', and 'Frank' sending in screen grab pics.
For any problems, and general falcon or technical issues, pls. contact: Irene Wade (email@example.com). I (Elli/catnap: firstname.lastname@example.org) will continue to support this page at my remote location, and if any observations are to be reported, please contact Irene or Warren Fitch (email@example.com).
